WebWorks Extension Development on Mac

I've been following the instructions provided here to create an extension for WebWorks from my java source. There are 2 conflicting instruction sets on how to go about adding the compiled .jar to my application, old and new. The problem with the new set of instructions is that it requires an .exe file, which I can't run on my Mac.


Two questions:

1. Is there a Mac version of preverify.exe, and if so where is it?

2. Is there any way to use Eclipse to do this? I got through the first tutorial, and I have a .jar from that I'd much prefer to use intead of relying on command line tools I may or may not have access to.

Re: WebWorks Extension Development on Mac



Appears that you want to write WW extensions.

for #1question, 

i am not sure how to do in mac.

have you tried preverify without .exe?

Why not considering using the source code instead for compiling into .jar (unless you dont want to expose your code)


for #2,

You can develop ext using eclipse with blackberry plugins.

debugging- bbwp with /s option will give you a jdw, that you can import as a new project & start debugging. this shuld be okay & will allow you to have breakpoints.
